My art is pleasant, vibrant and whimsical. There are already too many unpleasant things in life to create more of them

About

Theo Paul Vorster was born on 28 November 1958 in Namibia and grew up in Paarl, a village in the wine lands of the Western Cape, in South Africa. He studied BA Graphic art at the University of Stellenbosch and majored in printmaking.

Theo is known for creating unique art with lively line work, vibrant colors and a whimsical thematic approach. His work ultimately transports viewers into an energized dimension.

Exhibitions

I have at least one to two solo exhibitions a year and several group exhibitions. I continuously challenge myself and therefore the exhibitions differ in concept and medium. Although these exhibitions are dissimilar they are bound together by certain characteristics that prevail throughout.

My Process

I Love the three dimensional quality of carving into Lino. As the print is black and white it also allows me to experiment with colour.

All prints are individually hand coloured by me with acrylic ink. I keep the print edition low and only print between 10 and 20. All works are printed prior to an exhibition as the Lino block is painted in oil and sold once the edition has been printed.

The availability of the Original Linocut finished in oil paint is unique and remained a sought after artwork. This process makes the print more exclusive as I cannot reprint  a second edition.

Special Projects & Assignments

I have been commissioned by several Corporates in South Africa to conceptualize unique artworks for them for different art and marketing projects.

I welcome assignments of any nature as it mostly challenges me to explore new avenues in conceptualizing an artwork for my client.

It stretches my boundaries to work with themes and concepts that I might not have explored. This has often led to exhibitions and changes in my approach as pertains to content and technique.
